Default Mystery of the day

I'll be posting quite a bit as I try to figure out how everything on the PT works, question today is what does the brass plunger just left of the steering column do? Looks like an air valve, I tried pushing it, but nothing that I'm aware of happened?

If you are speaking of the upside down like emergency brake handle it is the retarder brake to be used in extreme cases for "power brakes". It will heat up the tranny real quick but will help you stop .

Got any writing on it?
Air brake lever maybe?
Pic would help.

Small "T" handle??
One cuts fuel to engine other controls AC temp. Neither one works on ours.

This little brass plunger to the right of the dimmer switch and just left of the steering column.

Thanks.

That's funny, the horns blew once in Moline while I was maneuvering and thought it was an electrical problem with the horn button on the wheel. Must have stepped on it inadvertently.

Some times newbes get caught by the Air horn floor button, and most of the time no one laughs out loud on the board.
I managed to put my foot on my trip home, and it blew for miles. I finally disconnected the air horn, not realizing I had my foot on it with a mat over it. Fun Learning.

OK, I feel better now! Sometimes I feel like such a nimrod with this thing, but it's fun learning!

I have been known to step on it while trying to quietly sneak out of a campground early in the morning

Then when I need it, I end up stamping all around like I was doing the Mexican Hat Dance looking for the button!
